Driven initially by Ivor Walklett's flair for design and desire to build his own car, the ginetta marque quickly developed from a hobby into a business. The marque synonymous with the four Walklett brothers then grew from its humble roots to become a serious force in motor racing and a volume road car maker. Ginetta - Road and Track Cars traces the story of a marque born out of sheer enthusiasm for cars and racing. With over forty different models designed and built between 1958 and 2005 by Ginetta, this book examines every element of the design innovation, shrewd business management and model line-up that made Ginetta unique among its competitors, and includes the full development history and technical specifications of each major model.

About the Author
Trevor Pyman grew up in Essex and attended Maldon Grammar School. Like many youngsters he was always interested in cars, an interest that quickly grew into a passion for British specialist sports cars. The locally made Ginetta cars were a particular draw for him as a teenager and, embarking on a career as a building surveyor and project manager, he was able to enjoy owning a variety of different specialist cars including a number of Ginettas. He has served as Registrar of the Ginetta Owners Club for nearly forty years. This is his second book on Ginettas, and his first for Crowood.
